    So easy and yummy. Very flavorful, not your typical meatball. My picky son loves them served with broccoli.

    This is going to be my new quick and delicious go to! Super easy to make, doesn’t take very long at all. Everyone loved it! Had it with white rice and steamed broccoli.

  9. Came back to leave another review, haha! I wanted to eat this, but didn’t want to have to make it into meatballs, so instead I cooked the “meatball” mix in a pan until the meat was brown, and then I just added the sauce. Still weighed out each serving for 37g, but saved so much time having to bake/roll the meatballs out!
